10:40 pm
later this britain for a state visit later this year. the daily express says that the eu wants to hit the uk with a bill of £49 billion as part of brexit. there is a lot to keep us busy. and only 16 minutes to do is turn. we will start with the daily mail. at last an end to the witchhunt. this is a long—running campaign to say that these trips have had these allegations held over them for a decade and nothing has come of it. they had put it on their front page because they consider it their victory, although other papers have been campaigning as well. they mention a lawyer who has been struck off over his tank chasing tactics here. this has been something that has put a lot of pressure on
10:41 pm
vetera ns has put a lot of pressure on veterans who avoided been through an awful lot. the government is the same label nb claims brought against vetera ns same label nb claims brought against veterans from the afghan conflict. this is a very popular move across the country. yes, there may have been things that were wrong but where other word criminal acts they deserve to be investigated properly and we have had cases where service men have been jailed and we have had cases where service men have beenjailed for what they did, which was wrong. a lot of these issues clearly were not and there has been significant investigation that has found no basis to the allegations made. now they are talking about the closure of this ongoing investigation. 3600 claims we re ongoing investigation. 3600 claims were looked at by the iraq historic delegation team and that will be down to 20. the most serious cases
10:42 pm
need to be investigated, but this consta nt need to be investigated, but this constant number... it has turned into a cash cow and that is what is worrying. it has gone on for so long because of the situation with the lawyer that had to be dealt with. we have been talking to the former head of the british army and he says that we should go back to the old system and someone who understands the military should be the first people to investigate. it would make sense. you would want the police to look at things that go wrong in the police and the army to look at things that have gone wrong within the army. you would hope that they have significant sense of independence within the organisation to judge themselves. if you really believe that the army had batted them and
10:43 pm
they deserve the trust and respect they deserve the trust and respect they get them, they have to be able to make those decisions. you have to wonder if there might be some kind of compensation for people who have been put through this for all these yea rs. been put through this for all these years. it has been hanging over them for so long. some health stories in the times to end the week. we have belittling at the nhs in great detail on bbc news. hospitals pay law comes £4000 for a day off work. a local is a stand on doctor who does not have a substantive post in a hospital. they come to fill the gaps. they can almost name their price. hundreds of locum doctors are paid £100,000 a year. we know the contracts which the doctors have been as to sign or of great concern.
10:44 pm
we have a significant issue within the nhs which is causing problems. i sign an interview with jeremy hunt where he talked in great terms about the situation and people will wonder how it can come to this and why we cannot have a more sensible system. we could see £300 million a year being spent on temporary doctors. there are massive gaps and wrote us, as any doctor will tell you, and they have to pluck them. the alternative is that they do not plug them with anybody. alternative is that they do not plug them with anybodylj alternative is that they do not plug them with anybody. i don't think we should pay 4000 staff but we should have sufficient staff that we don't have sufficient staff that we don't have these gaps in the first place. it takes years to train doctors will stop six or seven years. i have two doctors who have gone to australia and new zealand and that does not
10:45 pm
help. it explains how terrible the circumstances are. the pressure thereunder. and sure they did not wa nt to thereunder. and sure they did not want to leave britain necessarily. some will always leave but you do not want to train people and invest in them and then they think their best option is not to stay in the country. we need a health service we can all believe in and that is the duty of government. at the moment there seems to be a lack of faith in there seems to be a lack of faith in the delivery of that service. gps add to strain on a knee by failing to open all day. what does that mean? most surgeries seemed to be open from morning to evening. less than eight hours here. again, gps are incredibly stressed, all the ones i know, and people are leaving general practice, so something does not add up here. clearly we need gps
10:46 pm
to be open and we need them to be seeing elderly patients and they need to go to their gp quickly. otherwise they will end up in ame. -- in a&e. otherwise they will end up in ame. -- in me. my sister-in-law is a gp and she tells is often of this sheer demand on hertime and she tells is often of this sheer demand on her time will stop it seems like there is never—ending expectations. lots of gps go out to the community, not in every place, but some of them go, and some of them are doing business but the surgery them are doing business but the surgery would not qualify as being open. jeremy hunt says that he recognises things are unacceptable... he has been in charge. what about andrew lansley. he said it didn't help hospitals
10:47 pm
cope but there were other parts of the system... is it another cunning plan the government have come up with? be no funding to the nhs, as much as they claim it is increasing, it is not. maybe it is not increasing fast enough to keep up with demand. flexibility of demand. social care is another issue. fake news is killing mines, the head of apple, tim cook, demanding a drive to educate against the scourge of misinformation. the problem we have is that the whole concept of fake news has now been debased by the fa ct news has now been debased by the fact that anyone who comes up with information which is contrary to your opinion can be demeaned and denied and branded as fake news.
10:48 pm
when you have a representative of the most important government of the world talking about alternative fax your going down a rocky path. links cnn fake news to undermine them. —— calling cnn. i think what he is suggesting here is necessary. we need to educate the people. they had a left of the top fake stories of last year and one of them was that the pope had supported donald trump, which was complete nonsense. this is the social media echo chamber, people that are repeating things that are nonsense because it is what they want to believe. is this not just down to critical thinking, which we need to learn in school?|j which we need to learn in school?” think there is something about being
10:49 pm
presented with a new story that makes people think it is credible. but you don't think... am a journalist. but that is about being a critical thinker. we could teach that in schools. i think it is asking people to confront its. sometimes people just want to believe what they see. when people are being funnelled into a one—dimensional view of the world, irrespective of that view is correct, you're going to have problems. people want to believe things that coincide with what they believe. his argument is that if you tell children not to believe everything, they will go home and said the same to their parents. i think that is an interesting way to think that is an interesting way to think about it. it is like children
10:50 pm
telling their parents to recycle. the express, the eu is warned that they will not believe us. brussels once £49 billion. that sounds expensive. when you leave a club, you have to pay leaving charge. what is it for? one of the things it is covering is making the meps redundant, so that includes nigel farage who want to be in europe and is still receiving a salary. perhaps he won't take the redundancy... he claims his expenses and takes a salary. why would we pay? we have to. mps all used to pay something if
10:51 pm
they lost an election, and i think that has been dramatically cut. i think we can cut this. if you are due, irrespective of brexit, you will want the uk to pay a heavy price for leaving to stop anyone else going down the same pattern. therefore, they are going to extort as higha therefore, they are going to extort as high a price as they can. we need to find a way to counteract that. do you charge extra for speaking french on this programme? not with my accent. on page ten of the mail, no estate agents make buyers pay £1000 reservation fee just to take homes of the market. if you find a home
10:52 pm
wa nt to of the market. if you find a home want to buy and you don't want competition you pay £1000 and no one else can find it. critics have understandably labelled this another property rip—off. because people are so property rip—off. because people are so desperate to find a house want the property to come off the market, they are being made to pay this fee. this is not in scotland, i assume. it is banned there. i fig? have a system without gazumping. it isa have a system without gazumping. it is a simpler system. lots of people wa nt is a simpler system. lots of people want england and wales to copy scotla nd want england and wales to copy scotland in that regard. there are estate agents who are charging a couple of hundred pounds to sell your home. my theory is that the market is slow at the moment though there are not many properties coming on the market. prices are not falling but there is an expectation
10:53 pm
that they will stagnate. you get desperate sellers doing it, but that means there are not many properties which means fewer transactions and estate agents are finding other ways to make money. also there was the competition but the online estate agents who are charging much less than the established estate agents. they have no overheads. very few a nyway they have no overheads. very few anyway. on page three of the times, here comes red—hot tv. this is the end of those scandinavian series where we bought the jumper.m end of those scandinavian series where we bought the jumper. it will not be dark, it will be warm and bright and still murder. these are television as well are famous in brazil. they also pick out narcosis,
10:54 pm
a programme about the colombian drug trades which isjust a programme about the colombian drug trades which is just completed its second series. there is lots of drama. ithink second series. there is lots of drama. i think it is inevitable that we get a bit sick of the same stories. there is always a missing child, a cop who has problems, so there comes a time when you try to do the opposite. there are hardly uplifting. one top alert in brazil is about a serial killer thing that with police. it is in a nicer location. one uses a honey making businesses a front for a male escort service. another one is about a young couple that befriend their neighbours with disastrous consequences. neighbours with disastrous consequences. have got time talk
10:55 pm
about the back page... we do. we have one minute left. which one are we looking at. the times. this is going to hurt, wales against england on bbc one. it is a proper game. england played badly and one last week. this could be the defining match of the six nations. if england when they will look very strong. the welsh are determined to send them back with a fully behind their ears. —— a fleet of time. wales are the underdogs and they like being the underdogs. england do not do well in cardiff. it is going to be a great battle between two good teams. england are the favourites but it will be on the edge. it will be brutal. i would like to point out
10:56 pm
how our papers have neatly been stretched across the desk. you can see the front pages online. it's all there for you, seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you for coming in. good evening. for many fast it has been getting colder angrier with the state the week. today was perhaps the worst, there was a lot of cloud around as a light dusting of snow with frequent showers driven along by an easterly breeze coming in of the north sea. these were the sleet and snow showers earlier on and they will become more widespread as we head through the night, chiefly
10:57 pm
affecting eastern scotland and england, but they will drift further inland. there will be a dusting and lower levels and at 3—5 centimetres of snow on higher ground. further west clear skies and frost in the morning, cold start of the day. it is the snow showers that will be the story first thing in the morning. plenty in eastern scotland and across the north—east of england. snow for a time during saturday morning, particularly if you go to any height. in east anglia and in the south—east corner we are likely to see more rain, but it will feel cold and temperatures. of. throughout the day the showers will push a little bit further inland across north wales and perhaps into somerset, some isolated showers here. the best of any brightness will be in the extreme north—west, but temperatures will struggle at 3-6 but temperatures will struggle at 3—6 celsius at the best. the snow
10:58 pm
will pep up a little over a night, particularly across the pennines and the peak district. were likely to turn to rain across the south—eastern corner and it will be a windy day. that will make it feel even colder. less snow and more rain, i suspect, even colder. less snow and more rain, isuspect, on even colder. less snow and more rain, i suspect, on sunday. even colder. less snow and more rain, isuspect, on sunday. northern ireland and scotland this gets the worst of it. if you have not already got the message, this weekend will be cloudy for most, there will be wintry showers, a cold winds. gales are likely across southern scotland and northern england for a time. there is a glimmer of good news as we move into monday and tuesday, drierair we move into monday and tuesday, drier air will arrive from the south and break—up and allow for some more sunshine, and mild air will flood across the country. it will take its time to arrive to everyone, but it will start to feel a little bit milder. this is bbc news. i'm martine croxall. the headlines at 11pm:
10:59 pm
a discredited government investigation into thousands of allegations of abuse by iraq war veterans is shut down. this will be a huge releief to hundred of british troops who have had these quite unfair allegations hanging over them. they're now being freed of that. the health secretaryjeremy hunt concedes that the problems facing the nhs are completely unacceptable — but says there is a plan to help hospitals cope. cocaine with a street value of £50 million has been washed up on the norfolk coast.
